A 10-try blitz secured the bonus point early in the game, despite Ivybridge leading for 10 minutes at the start, as Exmouth RFC marched to a powerful 60-14 victory.

The Cockles did score first after a quick break from Matt Ryan, Ivybridge responded with a try for Henry Trudgill, converted by Matt Grieveson, 5-7. Exmouth then started to find their form and created havoc in attack and responded well in defence. Tries followed for Nick Headley (2), Gareth Roebuck and Charlie Gibbings, Roebuck struck two conversions, 29-7 at the break.

A very solid scrum with improving lineout from the forward pack ensured a platform to launch some attractive plays throughout the afternoon. In a super team performance, tries from Jake Inglis, Oli Mason, skipper Dave Bargent, Lewis Geran and Oli Cave, with Gareth Roebuck adding another six point from conversions to his tally of 15.

A wide spread of scores amongst forward and backs illustrates the breadth of play throughout the afternoon, a mix of individual skill with combined determination to get the opportunity. Ivybridge did add a final seven points from Sam Brown and Grieveson, but the Cockles closed the game out to win 60-14.

A trip to Launceston in a couple of weeks will surely test Exmouth. The Cornish All Blacks are one place above Exmouth currently in fifth place. The reward is available for both teams. Until then, the Cockles will work on the fine margins.

Team: Jack Madge, Charlie Gibbings, Tommy Andrews, Jack Fahy, Oli Mason, Toby Papp, Will Ridout, Dave Bargent, Matt Ryan, George Meadows, Jake Inglis, Oli Cave, Nick Headley, Lewis Geran, Gareth Roebuck. Ollie Turner, Steve Pape, James Clarke.

Exmouth Quins made the short trip to Ivybridge RFC 2nd XV, in the shadow of Dartmoor. A bonus point win secured with a 14-52 victory, in a fast-paced encounter. A club double secured on a fine Saturday.

Exmouth senior teams take a break on Saturday but the Colts are at home and take on Wellington RFC Colts in the first game of the Devon RFU Bowl Competition. Kick off at 2pm.
